Sounds like Knockhill!

Yet another circuit I won't get to do. Bah Humbug.

This is high on my to-do list.

You can request an application from the Belgian RACB club https://www.facebook.com/racb.belgium

Try this: http://www.cncr-nkbk.be

unfortunately there seems to be no longer an English version but you can find all the necessary contacts here. Georges Heynen is the flag chief at Spa.

You'll need to sign a waiver as a foreign marshal which basically tells you there's no insurance coverage but your own (Russ, be aware that SCCA does not provide any insurance for overseas events and you might wanna restrict your efforts to flagging only therefor). Waiver: http://www.cncr-nkbk.be/telechargement/statement.pdf

Good luck and enjoy!

p.s. and, unless it's changed, don't camp in the infield marshals campsite, it has a habit of [well what a surprise] flooding!

SCCA doesn't cover most Pro american races

I am on the verge of being completely done with that organization

Camp there in 2013 and it was fine. The main marshal's campsite is on the outside of Les Combes, literally! Public are not allowed to camp there but have a right of way through half of it, from Les Combes to the tunnel.
The infield campsite, at the bottom of the hill, is good, but has no toilets/showers. Also, as we discovered this year, you will not be allowed into the infield campsite without a car pass, which are not issued, at sign on, until Thursday afternoon, no point in getting there early.

Sign on used to be starting on Wednesday afternoon around 4-6 pm in Pizzeria Le Casino (former Cafe Mignon) in the centre of Stavelot, you can watch the parade in(to) Spa and head over to Stavelot in time. Has sign on changed last year?
